Facebook Event

As part of The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility, USFCAM presents the public installation and performance of Muro, an approximately 6 foot high by 20 foot long wall constructed with 1080 unique clay bricks. Muro will be erected in front of USFCAM’s entrance for one day, at the end of which visitors are invited to collectively disassemble the wall by removing one brick to take home with them.

Made by hand at Bosco Sodi’s studio in Oaxaca, Mexico, with the help of local craftsmen, each brick is sealed by the artist with his signature. Each of the brick timbers distributed to participants will include a custom printed carrying bag, a tag and a certificate of authenticity.

The project expands upon Sodi’s ongoing interest in organic processes beyond the artist’s control. The impermanent nature of Muro underscores the sentiment that all obstacles have the potential to be dismantled through united forces.

The Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation is the major supporter of The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility. Bosco Sodi, Muro is sponsored by The Gobioff Foundation and USF World.
